500 feet, I mean how slow were they flying the Black Hawk. And it was a DJI.
DJI has been discontinued by our military because of embedded spyware. I'm wondering if this was done on purpose, jerk!
I do not believe this AT ALL. The rotor wash from a full sized Helo would have blown any drone straight downwards.
Hello Pat, I am guessing by your comments that you are ex military like myself with access to non public info? I find this quite concerning, while these helps are hardened to a degree it makes me wonder if someone could pop a kilo of rdx under one and fly it to within 100m of a helicopter before detonating it! Very worrying indeed. Apparently in the UK we recently had a UAV pass over the wing if a landing airbus for heavens sake. Maybe some system where every drone and handset links board 4g or WiFi to a central database as soon as it is activated. That way we could track and contain worrying individuals. Your thoughts Pat?It happened. Although never published, it wasn’t even the first, second, or third time. The first three happened in places news reporters don’t have free access.
I agree,wind pressure would pull most things up into rotors, scary thought.I do not believe this AT ALL. The rotor wash from a full sized Helo would have blown any drone straight downwards.
Only option is it went into the rotors from the top, in this case seeing as the leading edges of the blades are reinforced I doubt a plastic drone would have caused any real damage.
